Last weekend I sat in on the Moebius class that Meg taught and this week have been madly knitting away on it. I love it! It hasn't been blocked in the photo but it sure is cute on. It took 6 skeins of Sweet Georgia Superwash Worsted in Tourmaline. It is a deep rich tourquoise with hints of green throughout - much more gorgeous than the photo shows. Perfect with my grey hair - did I tell you I`ve stopped coloring my hair. It took about 4 haircuts and now it`s all grey. I like it and other people have said they like it too - I`m kind of lucky in the grey department because it`s quite white. My grandmother had beautiful white hair and it seems along with the premature grey gene, I`ve also inherited the color.
I`m still spinning too - this last yarn is my best yet. The roving is Dye Hard Fiber Arts and I`m pretty sure if I keep up the thickness I`ve got happening, this might be the sock yarn I`ve been trying to make. I belong to the Sweet Georgia Fiber Club and have been gathering up all this fantastic fiber that I don`t dare touch until I feel as if I know what I`m doing.
Speaking of Sweet Georgia - this all arrived today. Her Special Edition colorway: Wetcoast Winter. I`ve got it in Superwash Sock, Tough Love Sock, Cashsilk Lace, Merino Silk and Superwash Worsted. I`m pretty sure I`m going to have to cast this on right away.
Be sure and mark Saturday, May 8th on your calendars. It`s the annual Knitter`s Frolic at the Japanese Canadian Cultural Center in Toronto and Dye Hard Fiber Arts will be debuting their yarn in our booth. Deb dropped off some wonderful Watermelon sock yarn for me on Wednesday - can`t wait to knit it up too!
